This explains a lot about downtown Tacoma...

People don't believe me when I say that downtown Tacoma seems to have way more...uh, characters, than other places of similar size/ layout. Check this out:

Western State Hospital is being accused of dumping unstable, mentally ill patients onto the streets of Tacoma, homeless shelters, even to soup kitchens.

(...)

Homeless shelters appear to be bearing the brunt of questionable discharges by Western, according to the court filings.


Now, can you guess what neighborhood all those shelters are in? And how many are walking distance from where I work?
